Awhile back I chatted with Alison Lumbatis on The Simple Show — she’s the creator of Style Challenges, and I really liked her no-nonsense approach to fashion (a topic I’m endlessly fascinated with yet still feel like a novice).
Which means I was super stoked to find out that we could pick one of her Style Challenges as the early-bird bonus for snagging the current bundle before Thursday, April 12 (which, spoiler alert: is tonight!).
I went with the French Minimalist Capsule Wardrobe Challenge, and as I’ve been going through Alison’s thoughts, I’ve been fascinated.
(By the way, these challenges are valued at $39 each, yet the whole bundle is under $30).
I’m a big fan of capsule wardrobes, and one of my favorite things about traveling around-the-world with my family for a school year was living out of a backpack. I thought I’d hate it, but turns out I loved the challenge of extended living with just a few things.
So far, I’d say this French minimalist capsule wardrobe framework is right up my alley.
Here’s two screenshots of my portal:
What I really like about this is not so much that it’s a whole new way of dressing for me — because I more-or-less embrace this style already. With this, Alison’s giving me one less decision to make. I can literally click on a day, and she tells me how to be a grownup with my outfit.
And it’s just a framework—I use it to build an outfit, tweaking it to my taste using the clothes I already have.
For example, this outfit is a good starting point for me — beige isn’t my thing, but I could do another simple sweater in a color that works better on me, and I’d personally go for a more casual bag. But I get the spirit of what she’s got for me here. And it’s helpful.
Anyway… I’m stoked this is my early-bird bonus. It’s an added freebie to the current bundle sale only through the rest of the day— after tonight, it goes away! So if you’ve been meaning to get the bundle, now’s the time to do it… this way, you get your choice of one of eight different Style Challenges.
Head here to learn more about what I’ve got in the bundle this year, and how you can snag my free bonus to you when you get the bundle only through me.
